Riverside Family Holidays in Cornwall
It’s that time of year when despite the plummeting winter temperatures, things are heating up for couples and love is in the chilly air as Valentine’s Day fast approaches.
So, why not spend some quality time with your loved one on a romantic weekend in a cosy cottage in Cornwall on Valentine’s Day.
Cornwall’s beautiful beaches and natural landscapes make it the perfect place for a romantic break, and during your stay, there are plenty of romantic activities to enjoy, day or night.
Unwind and relax with your partner with a pampering couples’ spa treatment at one of Cornwall’s spas. Choose from a massage or rejuvenating facial, before taking a dip in a heated swimming pool or bubbling Jacuzzi at the nearby Carlyon Bay Hotel.
With 400 miles of coastline and 300 beaches, there’s no shortage of magnificent views in Cornwall, so wrap up warm and take a romantic stroll along cliff paths, through woodlands, and across golden-sandy beaches. Head off on from Polruan and take the scenic walk to Pencarrow Head and soak up the sweeping views of Lantic Bay.
They say the way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, and there are a wide variety of restaurants in Cornwall that offer culinary delights for loved-up couples. Treat yourselves to a delicious romantic dinner at Sam’s in Fowey before heading back to your cottage and snuggling up together with a bottle of wine.
The sun might be setting earlier during the winter months but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a cheeky cocktail after a romantic coastal walk, or before dinner. Many of Cornwall’s beach bars remain open during the winter months, and even if the sun doesn’t make an appearance, the views will still be spectacular. Some great bars to enjoy a drink at sunset with beach or sea views include the Beach Club Restaurant at Carbis Bay near St Ives, Lewinnick Lodge in Newquay, the Lookout Gin Bar at Fowey Hall in Fowey, or the Rising Sun Inn at Portmellon Cove.
February may not be the warmest time of the year, but if you’re lucky to get a night with clear, starry skies, then pack up a bag with rugs, wine and chocolate, and head down to your nearest beach for a beautiful view. Listen to the sound of waves lapping the shore as you enjoy a night cuddled up to your loved one under the twinkling stars. Just remember to check the tides times!
